The Incredible Life Of Irma Grese And The Holocaust: The Intriguing Life And History Of The Blonde Beast The two World Wars were standing testimony of man's willingness to degenerate into cannibalistic beings; any attempt to justify a war is a useless one, if only because we cannot account for the millions of innocent people who lose their lives in the process. It isn't just the soldiers who die; from political prisoners to the innocent women and children who are not at the forefront are also killed mercilessly, especially when territory is annexed. Ironically, over the years, we have become so used to the idea of such mass destruction that it has all turned into simple statistics and numbers that vaguely float on the pages of some newspaper somewhere. The two World Wars in particular have gone down in history books as facts and figures, and we often find it hard to associate a single person with the atrocities that are committed in the name of national fervour. In this book, I have described the particulars of the Second World War and the rise of Nazism, from the very singular perspective of Irma Grese, who was one of the perpetrators of the violence. It is my hope that by dissecting the life of a single individual, especially that of an executioner's and not an innocent victim's, we can understand the true horrors of war and racial discrimination that destroys so many thousands of families and lives.

UPDATE: SECOND EDITION - WITH ADDED CONTENT!! Through the years there are names that are forever imbedded in our brains when we think of the cruelty of the Nazi regime. Adolf Hitler. Hermann Goering. Adolf Eichmann. Joseph Mengele. Heinrich Himmler. Rarely do we come across the name of a woman who was responsible for the same types of depravities that these men indulged themselves in. Irma Grese was one such woman. Know to some as a beauty, to the prisoners of her camp she was nothing short of a beast. Disowned by her own family, she embraced the Nazi doctrine to the fullest and revelled in the suffering of her charges. What would inspire anyone to gain enjoyment from the suffering of others? Was she raised by monsters or did this monster have her own personal demons? What length did her depravity go? Take a look into an aspect of the Nazi regime that is often overlooked, the life of a female guard and what lengths they went to in order to control their prisoners. The depth of their depravity is often shocking. Their wanton disregard of rules and the sanctity of life is appalling. Why should you read about this then? We read these not to glorify their deeds but to learn from the past. By learning from the past, we can remember what we never want to happen again. This story gives a rare glimpse past the concentration camp walls and into the heart of true evil, all from the observation of a female guard. Comments From Other Readers "I'll be honest, I didn't pay much attention in my history class when it came to wars. They were over so why should I care? History is bound to repeat itself. In terms of war, that's generally with tragic results. While the war itself was brutal, these brave men highlighted in the book took on immeasurable odds to save the lives of those around them. Starting with a short history of the war, it runs into these amazing stories. I wish I had paid attention when I was younger, but I'm certainly paying attention now." - Hank (Montana, US) "The heroics of men under the strain of war are something of a marvel. Any man that would willingly sacrifice himself for the life of another is to be commended. To do so repeatedly is heroic. Those that fight in any war for the freedom of others should all be considered heroic. There are some that stand out amongst the rest though. These are some of such stories from men who fought with valour in World War I. The author excels in his description of the history surrounding the war as well as his efforts in extoling the actions of these men. Truly a wonderful book." - Jacques (Montreal, Canada)

When you think about the holocaust, what is the first thing that comes to mind?

Publisher: Lulu Press, Inc
When you think about the holocaust, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Are your thoughts about the millions of innocent Jewish people who died needlessly because of a narrow minded political party? Maybe your first thoughts are of an extremely short many with a wicked heart, named Adolf Hitler. It also conjures images of those responsible, sharp-dressed chisel-faced officers of the Nazi SS, presiding over this atrocity, this nightmare they created, the nightmare they condoned, and the horrible acts that they carried out while wearing stony expressions of cold detachment. There was no human compassion in their actions. There was no question of decency or shame, only a touch of defiance and the empty indifference of self-righteous apathy, combined with a complete lack of respect for human dignity, humanity, or human life. There was no human compassion, whatsoever. It was as if the Nazis suddenly forgot that Jewish people were human beings.
The striking blue-eyed blonde Irma Grese, the “Beast of Auschwitz,” was also
dubbed by prisoners in Auschwitz as the “Beautiful Beast.” Grese was the most
notorious Schutzstaffel (SS) guard in the history of Auschwitz, where witnesses at

The Holocaust was not a major issue in the thirteen Nuremberg trials conducted in Germany between 1945-1949 by the International Military Tribunal. Can the word 'justice' be used to refer to trials that did not fully recognize the centrality of the Holocaust? What was the background of the postwar war crimes trials, and what was their impact on society and collective memory? How did they shape international law? This book brings together observations on these and other issues from a broad range of international scholars on the representation of the Holocaust in the postwar trials and its historiography.
